Default MSI Wind sub-notebook Preview

We dropped into MSIís headquarters in Taiwan this morning to get some hands on time with its new Wind PC. For those unaware of its importance, itís not only MSIís first netbook but also one of the first to carry the Intel Atom processor.

Having played with the Eee PC and quite frankly, finding it much too small to be comfortable, the 10-inch Wind was a real pleasure to use without crippling my hands into looking like a lobster claw (fingers all pinched together).

The Wind will launch in plain white, but will also have the option of these cool tattoos. Now, not being one for art splashed over the cover of electronic gadgets I have to say (while reaffirming my masculinity here) that it looks awesome.

Another thing the Wind has over the Eee PC is the fact it feels like a quality product Ė with the Eee, youíre aware of the (inexpensive) price you pay in the feel of the plastic. I have to say that itís even got a less cheap plastic feeling than MSIís notebooks that are twice the price.
